Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi slams "s***" transfer rumours

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi slams

Lloris and manager Mauricio Pochettino could point with some justification to what the France goalkeeper called "little details" on Saturday, particularly how goals by Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez might just have been offside.

Mustafi addressed the transfer rumours after starring for Arsenal in a derby victory over Tottenham.

The centre-back has always been linked with a move away from the Gunners but the defender had some strong words to rubbish the claims.

This means that a new centre-back is certainly something they're looking at in January, and Gazzetta dello Sport bring the Mustafi story back, although they do admit it will be far more hard than in the summer.

"That's you guys [the media] thinking it", Mustafi told the Daily Telegraph.

"Before we think about City, it's important to stay in the top four", admitted keeper Hugo Lloris.

"We need the strikers to contribute, to defend", he said.

"The longer you are somewhere, the more guilty you feel if it doesn't go well", he said.

"If you look at what Mesut achieved, you have to give him credit and respect".

Mustafi is not only vocal to journalists (and really, with 473,000 followers it's simply not on for Mustafi to punch down like that) but is also vocal in the dressing room; post-match, Arsene Wenger cited Mustafi's communcation, calling him a "leader" like Per Mertesacker. I have been talking to clubs or if I haven't, it's only rumors. Arsenal are obviously one of the biggest clubs in Europe and the fact that they are underperforming will make the headlines. "I'm here, I'm standing in front of you in an Arsenal shirt". It's only natural that this will get frustrating for the players who don't live outside the influence of the press.
